Under its new ownership of Chinese manufacturer Samuel Kuo, Robb & Stucky International re-opened a new 60,000-square-foot design studio and retail showroom in Fort Myers, FL, which will now include a Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams specialty boutique.

"This is a new beginning for a great retail brand," Robb & Stucky President Steven Lush said in a statement. Since the acquisition of the Robb & Stucky name and intellectual properties in March 2011, Lush says the focus has been on restoring the brand equities inherent in the Robb & Stucky name.

"We are reinventing Robb & Stucky," says Lush, "with a great team and smart strategies that are relevant for today's consumers. We have hired many of the employees that made a significant contribution to the previous Robb & Stucky, and have also brought in several key executives from outside the former company to bring a fresh perspective. We look forward to creating many more jobs as our growth continues."

“Innovative design superstars Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams present a young sophisticated style for a great value,” says Mark Stuart, creative director for Robb & Stucky International. “We are pleased to offer the highly recognized and respected Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams brand to our customers through this unique retail partnership.”

"Bob and I look forward to bringing our classic modern style and comfort to Robb & Stucky International's Southwest Florida customers. And we hope to meet many of them when we attend RSI's upcoming Grand Opening event," says Mitchell Gold, company co-founder and Chair-man. "Robb and Stucky International has created a beautiful setting, and its staff shares our goal of making furnishing a home easier and more comfortable for everyone."
